Thread: Prolotherapy billing advice

  1. #1

    Default Prolotherapy billing advice

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are new to doing any procedures in the office (just acupuncture currently). Now one of the anesthesiologists is starting prolotherapy. I understand that the code is M0076 and is not covered by insurances. What about the D50 he injects. Since we've never done anything in the office, I have not used any drug codes. What codes should I use for the
    D50? I have not received my HCPCS book yet (we didn't need it until now since we only billed professional anesthesiologist services!). I need to brush up on billing supplies - any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Above is a thread I saw that mentions HCPCS coding for D50.

    I would assume that if the therapy is non covered the drug that is used to perform it should be considered non covered also.

    Default Prolotherapy

    We ended up making this a cash service with all supplies included.
